Mermaid's Tale welcomes you to her adventure by the sea! We are directly across the street from beach access to the amazing white sand Ocean Isle Beach and also across the street from the Summer Place HOA pool. We have 4 comfy bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. There are two 2nd floor bedrooms which have private baths with showers and 2 main floor bedrooms that share a large Jack and Jill bath with a tub/shower combo. The large vaulted central living room/kitchen/dining has plenty of space for your family or group to cook, dine and relax together. We recently renovated the kitchen with a fresh white and turquoise color scheme, new quartz island counter top, and new appliances. We replaced all the carpeting and bedroom flooring. There is a 42" TV in the living room, visible from the kitchen and dining areas. There is also house wide WIFI access. The covered front porch has a peaceful ocean view and plenty of shade for morning coffee and lazy afternoons. The fenced backyard is an awesome place to chill in the shade or relax in the hot tub after a rousing day at the beach or pool. We absolutely love our home and Ocean Isle Beach for its relaxed and casual beauty and we know you will too!

About Jean and Steve Wolfe
We relocated to Ocean Isle Beach, NC from St. Paul, MN and loved it! We have always been avid boaters with a deep love of the outdoors and especially the beach. When the opportunity arose to come to OIB, we jumped at the chance to live near the ocean. We had 2 daughters in college and an empty nest, so we decided to fill our extra time with buying a beach house and making it our own. We spent the 6 months after we arrived renovating our house and turning it into "Mermaid's Tale". We are excited to share it with you!
Jean and Steve Wolfe purchased this House in 2015
Why Jean and Steve Wolfe chose Ocean Isle Beach
Our family was initially drawn to Ocean Isle Beach because of the call from the ocean after living in the Midwest our whole lives. So, when we started researching the properties on the Island, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to be right across the street from the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Not to mention when you want to get away form the salt and sand, we are also directly across from our local community pool. With the kids not living at home anymore, we had plenty of time to renovate Mermaid's Tale and turn it into our dream ocean side home. In addition, an ideal vacation rental with its four bedrooms and three full baths for plenty of privacy and comfort. Vacation groups and families will also enjoy the combined kitchen-dining-living space for games, relaxing, and group meals. Although Mermaid's tale is a rental, we hope you will be able to feel at home and as comfortable as we do when staying here in OIB!
What makes this House unique
The ocean view at Mermaid's Tale and the sound of crashing waves through open windows or from the porch are what initially drew us here. The open floor plan perfectly fits the way we live and entertain. I still pinch myself every time I walk across the street for my beach walk!

Such a great owner to rent with!
Steve and Jean were such a pleasure to rent with! Our stay was unfortunately cut very short by Hurricane Florence, but Steve kept in touch with us to stay on top of evacuation information and they voluntarily refunded us for the nights (5 of 7) that we had to miss.
The home was beautiful and perfectly accommodated 2 families with young children. We would definitely try to rent again!
Mermaid's Tale: A warm welcome to OIB
Our Girl's Weekend crew of 10 women stayed at Mermaid's Tale during the weekend of Sept 6th thru 9th. We were greeted with a Welcome message on the door along with a gorgeous home attached to it. The house sleeps 12; we had 10 and it was the perfect fit. It is well stocked with necessities (spices, coffee filters, bath and bed linens, beach towels, etc.) as well as it is beautifully decorated. The location can't be beat. It faces the beach so while enjoying coffee on the front porch, you can see and hear the ocean. The hot tub is well maintained and a nice break from the ocean or the community pool (across the entryway from the house). We loved staying at Mermaid's Tale and will definitely be back!
Beautiful house in perfect location
Mermaid's Tale was the perfect house for our family vacation. There is so much attention to detail which makes the house very welcoming! The bikes, beach towels, and beach toys were a great addition and were utilized daily. The house is in a perfect location with it being so close to beach access and not too far from town. The community pool was very refreshing at the end of the day. The hot tub and hammock were also very relaxing. Hope to stay again.
The House was very clean and had everything we needed!
We loved this home. They provided the bedding and towels which was one less thing for us to bring from NY. They even had extra beach towels. The kitchen had everything we needed for when we ate meals in. We had so much fun with the hot tub and games. Also helpful was the extra beach chairs since my brother didn’t have room to bring some for his family. We loved the spacious front deck and enjoyed many hours visiting outside. We plan on returning next summer. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.
Very comfortable with great location by beach access and pool.
Our family enjoyed a great week of vacation at Mermaid’s tale! Did want to mention that the lower wood piece of the porch gate was hanging down loose and needs repair. Thank you for renting your lovely place for us to enjoy.
It was a very charming property.
Ocean Isle is a quaint place with very friendly people. The beach was spectacular. We enjoyed our stay
We particularly enjoy taking the short walk to the beach to swim, tan, read, or walk. There are plenty of fun shells to find as well as a large beach to set up the umbrella and chairs provided. The island has side walks on the main roads to take the bikes out on for a nice ride, or to explore the west or east ends of OIB. A fun event that goes on here every Friday night (in the summer) is an island get-together just one mile from the house. It features a band, food, and fun for the whole family. The other days of the week can be filled with relaxation, trips to the local restaurants and fresh seafood spots, mini golf, go carting or one of the other many activities found here.
